Document Cost Control
Solution Name: Document Cost Control
What Does It Do: A software based solution designed to highlight and reduce document production costs.
* Total visibility of current document production activity
* Complete transparency of overall costs
* Full control of document production spend
* Significant “painless” cost reductions
Recent analysis by leading researchers Gartner group has revealed a year on year increase in print volumes over the last 24 months resulting in UK businesses now spending between 3% to 5% of their annual turnover on document printing costs.
The sobering thought is that despite relying on their now integral document production hardware, such as printers, digital photocopiers and multi-functional devices (MFD’s), many businesses have no insight into exactly what they are spending such a huge portion of their profits on and minimal ability to control such costs.
An Apogee Full Managed Print Solution (MPS) hands you complete transparency of document production within your business. Through our industry leading software solutions we can implement complete cost control for your organisation’s printing and copying realising typical saving of between 30-40%.
Once you have a Apogee document cost control solution in place your business will have full visibility of every document passing throughout your output devices. Each print or copy job is logged into the software with detailed information regarding user, job finishing options, number of pages & page size, use of colour and, of course, cost.
Armed with this information you can then work hand in hand with us to tailor the solution to reduce the amount of waste, unnecessary use of colour and much more. The cost control solution additionally allows for user and departmental budget caps, post event audit for charge back purposes along with a whole host of additional document cost control options.
